Young Tawny Owl
Young tawny owls often leave their nests before they can fly, bumbling around the tree branches, or sitting defiantly at the base of a tree, waiting to be fed. I came upon this one in Monsal Dale early one May morning and sketched him before putting him up on a branch out of harms way.
